View Full Version : Update Java now.

01-22-2010, 06:45 PM
Today we got the direst warning I've ever seen from our university security folks about the critical need to update Java. We basically had to drop everything and make sure all our PCs were up to date. Apparently there are some really nasty things going around. Java update 17 or 18 are fine, but anything lower than 17 is vulnerable. You can get the latest version at java.com.

It seems the latest version for my system is version 16. I am running Windows 7 64 bit on this laptop.

We're running version 6 update 15 at work. My group is in the middle of a development project and updating now isn't great timing. I haven't been able to find anything about the specifics of vulnerabilities for the pre-17 updates. Anyone got any pointers to more information on this? Thanks.
